Is it also acceptable " Ik zie niet zijn nek?


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Adam_Danley

why can't it be "her neck" ?


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/SebastianChw

That would be "haar nek".

Why "I do not see their neck" is wrong?

Can I say"Ik zie geen zijn nek"?

No, that's not correct.

That won't work, but this would:

"Hij heeft geen nek."

(He has no neck.)
